Part2: Super natural powers?

Aloki smiled and entered college with a small prayer in her mind. She knew God will answer her prayers. HE never rejected her prayers, they were fulfilled, may be in different forms and timings but they always were!

She asked for the directions for her induction class from some one who seemed to be a senior. She acknowledged her said a thank you and was in her class. She just sat at the random empty one. Next to her was a young kid who looked almost 4 years younger to her, they both exchanged pleasantaries. Hey, this is Aloki, hey this is Adithi!

Soon, everyone stood up in respect to the professor who just enetered the class. Hello everyone I am Raghunandan. Please have your seat. I am glad to see you all  here. I know you are all excited to see what those old guys were up to those years? how they used to communicate? basically you love english, emotion and write up...that is what got you here...agree? asked Raghunandan with a smile. Everyone extended a broad smile and class went on enthusiastically introducing college and course structure for the 2 years, every student had glow in their eyes, they envisaged themselves as future writers/professors/Associates. The class was exciting and communication was bidirectional unlikely Aloki's degree induction class which she felt was boring. The reason might be because most of them chose this, like after  gaining complete senses and exposure to the world, they knew this is what they need, this is what they can live on!

Aloki was astounded by the collection of books in the library.It was a huge library with big strips set up on every corner seperating philosphy/ficiton/non ficition and so on endless geners, She thought a lifetime would not be sufficient to complete them. Every student will be given a login id and initial password soon, you can access the computers which are spread in between to track the book allotment faster explained librarian to bunch of  fresh faces before him. He looked older and strangely composed and calm. 

They dispersed to random directions, books attracted them like magnetic forces. Yay! this would be pleasure, Aloki already felt better joining college after such a long gap. There it is young lady, the book you were searching for, Aloki was startled to know someone speaking to her, she turned around only to see the librarian, hmm, you scared me sir, she told.

Haha! Sorry about scaring you, the book is over there in the 3rd row. Oh ok Thank you sir, she said and moved forward to get a glimpse of the book. It striked to her after a moment, she left the book there and immediately moved to librarian, sir, how did you know i was looking for this book, I didn't even tell you.

Librarian took a deep breath and said "I am sure you will not believe this, I have got powers to read people's mind, If I am not wrong, you are now in stage 4 of reading course. Stage 4 is an interesting phase though, when I was during that stage I was searching for answers for every goddamn thing, your soul just gets excited with the term question! As a part of wanting to find who you are, purpose of your life and meaning of existence, you would tend ro read more books, you would tend to gain more knowledge, don't worry, at the end you would be successful.

Aloki dropped her jaw in surprise! how does he know everything, is it true or is he just playing somekind of random joke. Aloki made a face which portraited every single emotion of what she is going through and her quizacal look made the old man smile, Easy, easy lady! I just made fun. I overheard you speaking about the book with your friend and thought I would help you.

Ohhh! that is it, I really was wondering how you aquired super natural powers! Librarian smiled and left the place.

He moved forward leaving behind strong imprints in Aloki.

It was around when she was 22 she started reading books, she was fascinated by word LOVE, she fell in love with characters of the book, she laughed when they had fun, she was depressed when the character was depressed, she cried with them feeling the pain, she grew up with characters in the book.

Aloki didn't leave single famous book on love, she experienced butterflies in stomach reading them, it was always joyous to see someone happy, like they show in movies happily ever after!

She did get attracted to men, girls do have crush! but nothing lasted more than 10 days. Whether it was hormonal change or the age or the thought process that matters, she started losing interest in love stories, she could not relate herself to them, she just could not feel. She believed there was more to love, she believed there was more to life.

This tickling didn't leave her until she found new interests, strangely, she got attracted to crime, suspense thrillers, power and women in ancient history. She grabbed the knowledge like a pro on history, the power women showed to come out of the circle that had challenged them and restricted to particular fields was enormous, Aloki was simply inspired. She could even imagine how draupadi suggested her husbands in every matter she was aware of and they were glad enough to take her suggestions. Only, if she had known about gambling that was taking place, she would have stopped in the first place and there would not be a war called kurukshetra that caused mass destruction to human life.How she would have struggled to overcome the barriers.

Women at that time with restrictions did achieve so much, she thought to herself she could achieve more and can create miracles since she have so many people patting her back and walking along with her in every part of life. She did learn a lot and that transformed her to a different human being altogether.

After a few years of digging in to past, she was interested about current time, what is she now? why was she even born?what was the purpose of life?

She is currently in the process of finding answers to her endless questions.

After this analysis she was sure she was in stage 3. But he said she was in stage 4. She thought a lot through out her journey to her room, it suddenly striked her, those 22 years she wasted in her mere life with out reading any books other than subjects might come under stage 1 which she missed, if god gives her a chance she runs back to past and read all the comics, mougli adventures, and other things again and again.

That was just awesome, librarian predicted her stage in reading just by the book she chose. Now she knew, every part of him is knowledge, he is like a walking book.


Go Green...Save trees:)
